Park City skier Gradey Cullins trains at Snogression to practice new tricks during the off-season.
No Snow? No Problem.
When Snowbird reluctantly signals the end of yet another ski season, the six-month countdown to November begins. During that interminable wait, diehards inevitably wonder where they can go to stave off their winter withdrawals.
Snogression is the answer to that compulsion. Designed by pro athletes to replace gymnastic centers as the go-to training grounds for skiers and boarders, Snogression replaces tumbling apparatus with foam pits, Olympic trampolines, rails and a massive ramp. It’s not the place to learn how to get down the mountain (even beginners at Snogression are competent on the slopes), but it is ideal for practicing kangaroo flips without blowing up your spine.
Because the facility is dedicated to safety, newcomers are required to participate in an introductory class. Once visitors complete the brief course, they’re welcome to practice in the indoor park on their own, tag along with a group session or get one-on-one instruction. $20 per freeride session after the required $35 basic two-hour class, 2828 S. 1030 West, South Salt Lake, 801-450-3857, snogression.com.
